A benefit concert in support of Special Olympics Monaco, an organisation under the High Patronage of HSH Prince Albert that provides opportunities for adults and children with intellectual disabilities to practice sport, takes place Saturday at 8:30 pm.

Philippe Bender will conduct the Monte Carlo Philharmonic Orchestra (OPMC), with guest pianist Francois-Réné Duchable, in the fundraising performance at Auditorium Rainier III.

This evening’s program includes Liszt’s Piano Concerto No 1 and Les Préludes, as well as Weber’s Konzertstück in F Minor.

Tickets (€20 and €30) are available from the Monte Carlo Casino box office or online.

Founded in the early Eighties, Special Olympics Monaco counts more than 70 athletes who represent the Monegasque delegation throughout the world, including at the 2017 Special Olympics World Winter Games in Austria next month from March 14-25.

A passionate advocate of the Special Olympics movement, HSH Princess Charlene became the Special Olympics Monaco Honorary President in 2012.
